Transforming Plant Cells by Agrobacterium Tumefaciens

Summary: An experiment to determine whether a plant can equally form tumours as animals do when infected by Agrobacterium tumefaciens and what effect does it have on plant anatomy and physiology revealed that Kalachoe sp. plants infected with Agrobacterium tumefaciens sp. (B6S3) were became tumourous, as expected. But to our surprise, simple roots also formed from the tumour itself.

ABSTRACT

By studying cells, we learned that there are only minor differences between plant and animal cell structures. It became apparent to us that if it is possible for a tumour to grow in animal cells, then it might also occur in plant cells. To confirm such line of thoughts, we chose to research on plant physiology for the extended essay.

This project was designed to answer the question, "Can a plant equally form tumours as animals do when infected by Agrobacterium tumefaciens sp. (B6S3), and if yes, what affect does...
